Like Fabian hinted, i used the version with the 2011.10.0 tag and
applied the unaligned access patch.

Only the boot arguments have been changed, I used the tool bareboxenv,
./scripts/bareboxenv ./arch/arm/boards/panda/env/ ~/barebox-test/myenv-panda
and copied it as bareboxenv to the SD card.
This step was shown in a tutorial (can't find the link right now),
should I use the defaultenv instead?
If I would use the defaultenv, can I do it like:
scripts/bareboxenv ./defaultenv/ ~/barebox-test/myenv-panda
Or is there another way to do it?

I disabled GPMC in the kernel, with u-boot it worked* on my 2.6.35
Linux (plus some TI patches).
* Not totally since I got framebuffer problems, but that is another
problem and not the fault of the bootloader.
